About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Words Mean so Much...

What was your favorite Valentine's Day gift?
A few years ago I received a gorgeous, leather Coach purse from my sweetie. I was afraid to use it. I knew it was very expensive and I was afraid I would spill something on it, lose it, that someone would steal it, etc. It sat in the box for many days. I am quite sure that I hurt my husband's feelings, although that was not my intention. I told him that I really needed to return it. It was just too. much. money. You know what he told me? He told me that he loved me and that I was worth. it. I deserved special things. This, my friends, was my favorite gift. The words. The man that I adore telling me that I was very special to him, even though I don't often feel that way about myself. I did return the purse and found one that I loved that was more reasonable BUT I will never forget how my sweetie made me feel. So very loved.

What a sweet gift and a sweet memory. I don't think I could bring myself to use that bad either. I'm just a simple girl with simple tastes. ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Words mean more to me then gifts any day. I love when Tim leaves me notes everywhere (even on the toilet paper!)

Love,
